Where It All Started- Silhouette Cameo Project

I was asked to make a unique wedding shower gift and once I looked online for some inspiration I came up with this fabulous pillow!! I just LOVE how it turned out!DSC_0198-1I used my Silhouette Cameo just like I use with a lot of my other projects.  This was a project made with freezer paper, paint and fabric.

I bought some fabric from JoAnn Fabrics in a tan color, almost like a Muslin.  Then I had the regular paint at home, which I just added fabric medium to it.  I use a flat headed sponge brush to paint it and freezer paper stencil cut out from my Silhouette.     photo 1 (10)You cut the negative image out on freezer paper, and you mirror the image.  You then iron the freezer paper onto the fabric, with shiny side down, and it temporarily sticks to the fabric your ironing it onto.  This creates a stencil and you can paint it how you wish! I’ve did this quite a few times with the other pillows I have in my Etsy Shop too.   photo 2 (10)Just brush the paint on, and make sure the whole area is covered.  Don’t put too much on or it will take forever to try and it might seep through the edges of the paper and your project won’t turn out right. photo 3 (4)Tada!  After the paint dries, you peel off the paper and you have your project!!  I thought a little red in the heart would be perfect for this pillow.  The pillow is meant to represent where the couple met each other.  I know they will love it! I can’t wait to get it listed on my Etsy Shop! DSC_0200-1

Project 365, Day 8

Brody’s at basketball practice so I’m getting things ready for dinner.  We are going to try this recipe Oven Toasted Ravioli Recipe from Six Sisters’ Stuff.  Their food and website are super cute and I can’t wait to meet them.  I’ve also looked for some slow cooker recipes on their website too.  Let’s hope it turns out good!

Didn’t do a whole lot today, called my friend MARVIN for unemployment.  Hopefully that gets going soon, missing income for 4 weeks now is frustrating.  I’m trying to plan Caden’s 4th birthday but need money for the deposit for the place.

We decided to have his party at Castaway Play.  With lots of little ones in the family, I think they will have a blast! Plus it’s made so that adults can play in it too!  Should be fun! 

Brody is ready for basketball!

Brody has his first basketball game of the season on Saturday! 🙂 He’s super excited.
